Jürgen Klopp has insisted Liverpool will offer Rhian Brewster ‘all the support he needs’ after the young striker this week spoke out about the racial abuse he has faced during his fledgling career.
Speaking in his pre-Leicester press conference on Friday, when asked about Brewster’s comments, Klopp said:
“He will get all the support he needs and wants and we can give.
“I’m really long in this sport and I’ve never faced a situation like that but obviously it happens all the time.
“I’m really happy that he is brave enough to do what he did. It’s such an important thing – I can’t believe people still have these thoughts in their minds.
“Obviously, we needed a 17-year-old boy to shout out, to say, ‘it’s still happening and it happens all the time – I need help, we need help and we have to stop that’.
“It’s not a situation that you want a 17-year-old boy (to be) in but, if it is like this, then he needs help and we will give it to him, of course.”
